Mark Zuckerberg Can Sack 11,000 Workers But Shareholders Can’t Sack Him: It’s Called ‘Management Entrenchment’

“I want to take accountability for these decisions and for how we got here,” tech billionaire Mark Zuckerberg told the 11,000 staff he sacked this week. But does he really? The retrenchment of about 13% of the workforce at Meta, owner of Facebook and Instagram, comes as Zuckerberg’s ambitions for a “metaverse” tank. The company’s net income in the third quarter of 2022 (July to September) was US$4.4 billion – less than half the US$9.2 billion it made in the same period in 2021. That’s due to a 5% decline in total revenue and a 20% increase in costs, as the Facebook creator invested in his idea of “an embodied internet – where, instead of just viewing content, you are in it” and readied for a post-COVID boom that never came. Since he changed the company’s name to Meta a year ago, its s...

No Doubt, That Sanaa Would Go Into The Business Called Show

Sanaa Lathan is the product of a bi-coastal union between entertainment professionals: Stan Lathan, a television producer, and Eleanor McCoy, a Broadway actress. She made her big-screen debut in Drive (1996). It was only a bit part, but she followed it up with guest spots on Moesha, In the House, and Family Matters, all in the span of a few months. In 1997 Sanaa appeared on the sitcom Built to Last, which was unfortunately built to be canceled. After a stint on the short lived Al Franken sitcom LateLine, Sanaa took a brief turn in the Wesley Snipes vampire action picture Blade (1998). That in turn led to bigger and better roles in movies such as Life (1999) and The Best Man (1999). Sanaa first unleashed her massive round breasts to the world in Love & Basketball (2000) opposite Omar ...

Ozzy Osbourne has a type of Parkinson’s disease called Parkin: A neurologist explains

For many, hearing the word “Parkinson’s” conjures an image of tremors. But Parkinson’s disease, brought about by loss of nerve and other brain cells, is actually an incredibly complex movement disorder that can cause symptoms as wide-ranging as smell loss, thinking issues, depression and swallowing problems. More than 1 million people in the U.S. have the illness, and millions more loved ones and caregivers are affected by it, too. Rocker Ozzy Osbourne announced Jan. 21, 2020 that he has a type of Parkinson’s called Parkin, named after the gene associated with this type of Parkinson’s. Parkin is involved in maintaining the energy-producing area of cells, called mitochondria. This type of the disease often responds well to deep brain stimulation. While Osbourne, 71, said it’s been “terrib...

Ex-Cop Called “Piratedeadpool” Stole Pensioner’s $3.4 Million Share Portfolio Using Dark Web

James Goris has pleaded guilty to one count each for obtaining property by deception, making identification information, child pornography, and using fake documents. The 46-year-old man used the dark web to make millions of dollars from Kenneth Holt, a pensioner, according to a report read at the Victoria County Court. In a statement released by Penny Thorp, the prosecutor, Goris used illegal means to take control of the pensioner’s portfolio shares. As claimed by a report, Goris created a fake document and a post office box address to obtain complete access to Holt’s portfolio shares. James Goris, who happens to be a former police officer, has been identified as a notorious forger who operates under the username “piratedeadpool” on the dark web. He is well known for his illeg...

Why I Teach a Course Called “White Racism”

The need for students to learn about racism in American society existed long before I began teaching a course called “White Racism” at Florida Gulf Coast University earlier this year. I chose to title my course “White Racism” because I thought it was scholarly and succinct, precise and powerful. But others saw it differently. Many White Americans (and some people of color) became upset when they learned about this course. Thousands took to social media and far-right news sites and racist blogs to attack the course and me personally. Some 150 of these individuals sent me hateful and threatening messages. It might be tempting to blame the hostility to my course on the current political climate, in which the president of the United States routinely makes overtly racist statements and ...

T.I. Doesn’t Want To Be Called T.I. Anymore

In 2015, T.I. made an appearance on Rap Radar Podcast and said that the letters of his famous name are “two letters that mean absolutely nothing to me.”The celebrity currently known as T.I. grew up in Atlanta, Georgia, as Tip, a name he has said friends and family called him more often than his government name, Clifford. Early on in his career, he worked with LaFace Records, which the major label Arista Records ended up absorbing. As the hip-hop artist Q-Tip from A Tribe Called Quest was on Arista, the label decided Tip needed to change his performance name.“[The record label] strongly suggested that I change my name, but I had nothing to change my name to,” Tip told Esquire in 2015. “I’d never been called anything else. I felt like, since it’s just a suggestion, maybe if I come up with n...

D.C.’s Black Gay and Trans Kids Fought Back, Formed a “Gang” Called Check It, Now Star in a Documentary

  “I love a red carpet,” 26-year-old Star giggled excitedly in Chelsea’s Bowtie Cinema last Saturday night. She was wearing a shiny, yellow A-line dress with flowers printed on it, and high-heeled gladiator sandals. In her D.C. accent, she drew out the next sentence so as to luxuriate in it. “I love to be seeeeeeeeeeen.”And so she was, big time. A few minutes later, Star’s image would be projected onto a screen during the world premiere of the Tribeca Film Festival’s Check It, an eponymously named documentary that follows principal members of Check It (also known as The Check It), a crew of young LGBT black men and women who live in Washington D.C. What Check It is, exactly, depends on who’s describing it. Its members, six of whom were on display that night, call it a family. Source:...
